Network Monitoring Overhead

  • 1.  Network Monitoring Overhead

    I am proposing  Spectrum and UIM combination for a Network Monitoring opportunity with a large automtotive customer

    The customer has a distributed network with edge, core, distribution , access and Wireless Access Points spread across 16 locations -- the total device count exceeds 1,300

     

    There are many locations that are connected over low speed WAN links (MPLS) to the Data Center -- 512Kbps

    In such cases, the customer would like to understand how we can ensure that bandwidth consumed by Spectrum + UIM from the DC does not affect the bandwidth available for mission critical applications such as SAP

    Estimates on how much network bandwidth Spectrum and UIM consume in a polling cycle per device is needed urgently

    Also how much network overhead is consumed during first time discovery and configuration management from Spectrum + UIM will help us complete the hypothesis

    Any other inputs are also welcome
